* SlidingScaleOfGenderInequality: Somewhere between levels 5 and 6. Björn got hooked up in Judea by a three years older girl[[spoiler:, being nobody else than the cousin of the female mutinist number 1,]] and loved it. Björn's first host in Atlantis also was a girl and would later provide him with crucial information. And his girlfriend Rosi beats the crap out of her father whenever she deems it necessary. The girls in this world seem pretty dangerous and no longer in need [[GirlsNeedRoleModels of such a thing as role models]].

Four years after writing for the AlternateHistory Literature/ChaosTimeline ended, another [[@/DrNodelescu German reader]] from AlternateHistoryDotCom came to abuse its world as a playground to poach around in it as he found it easier and more exciting than [[SelfDeprecation writing a timeline on his own]]. It ended as a 30-pager with the title "Samowar In Atlantis" which in the meantime has extended beyond its initial scope.

** German has an own short acronym for a bunch of guys sharing a flat, they call it a "WG" or [[GratuitousGerman Wohngemeinschaft]], an issue especially for poor students. While searching for shelter, he used some short-lived shelter of this kind to do so that was rather organized [[{{Landlord}} like a firm]] rather than a [[Film/TheSpanishInn commune]] because its head (Saskia) dislikes affecting her "business" with [[NotGoodWithPeople all too many unproductive quarrels]]. And [[AuthorAvatar Björn]] loves it that way.

* ComingOfAgeStory: Deconstructed at least for Björn. The childhood part is lacking altogether. SexAsARiteOfPassage is subverted to hell and back. 1993 Judea are only a pre-course to his subsequent encounters in Europe, let alone his studies in Atlantis a couple of years later. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And it stretches a whole decade]]. Also see OvershadowedByAwesome.

* RantInducingSlight: Even unprovoked, Björn makes it clear that he really hates it to hear his hometown Wismar in Mecklenburg being called part of a ''Dunkeldeutschland'' [[note]]In our world, this ''dark(est) Germany'' is a nickname West Germans apply to EastGermany because of their ignorance about it, in this world, it's a label for all the no man's land bordering this world's IronCurtain that cut of non-Socialist European Germany from the Atlantic Ocean, a more sinister brand of FlyoverCountry if you want. In both worlds, Wismar would be considered part of both respective brands.[[/note]] and complains about how his place supposedly used to be treated like a contagious disease.

** This is later subverted with the Nipponese intestinal cancer patient in Fort Knox whose [[RuthlessModernPirates personal context]] provides a [[ShellShockedSenior literal understanding]] of its metaphor as he was a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal chin-chin]] [[GroinAttack chopper]].

* Björn goes completely [[ToGetRichIsGlorious Deng Xiaoping]] when he states that it didn't matter if the cat were black or white, so long it catches mice. In fact, it's a centuries-old proverb from the Chinese Sichuan province where Deng hailed from.
